Pumpkin Bundt Cake

When you think of pumpkin, you probably think of baking a pumpkin pie.  There are many different recipes you can make with pumpkin.  I made this really delicious pumpkin bundt cake with a pecan caramel sauce.  This has quickly become a family favorite in our house instead of pumpkin pie.

This is a perfect recipe to make and bring to a party. I recommend serving some of the sauce on the side as you will want extra or less of the sauce, depending on your taste.

Make sure to spray the bundt pan very well.  This will allow the cake to release from the pan easily, in 1 piece.

How Do You Remove Bundt Cakes From The Pan?

Use non-stick spray (we use the kind with flour in it) before putting the batter in. Once the cakes are done baking and you’ve removed them from the oven.  Let the cakes sit around 10 minutes before flipping them out onto a plate.  You can also place parchment paper down on the baking sheet and flip the cakes onto this to cool.

How Full Do You Fill Bundt Pans?

You can fill them about 3/4 full. The 9.5 inch pans, we spread the batter around evenly and that left about an inch from the top.

How Do You Easily Bake Bundt Cake?

Bundt cake pans are not always stable in the oven.  It is easier to place them on a baking sheet (or two) so that you can easily place them into the oven, and pull them out of the oven.  This also keeps any overflow from getting all over your oven as well.

Definitely.  You will want to adjust the amount of time you bake the cake from 1 hour to 30-45 minutes.  Check with a toothpick to ensure they are done.  Let them cool, flip out and spray the pan again to bake more.
